Abstract: Depletion of fossil fuel reserves and stringent pollution norms has created a need for search alternate source that can fuel internal combustion engine. The fuels obtained from green matter has got great potential to replace conventional fossil fuels to power internal combustion engine (ICE). But the performance of the ICE are influenced by many parameters such as injector opening pressure, injection timing, and combustion chamber profile. Current work deals with evaluation of engine performance, combustion characteristics of direction injection diesel engine fitted with re-entrant toroidal (RET) combustion chamber equipped with six hole nozzle fueled with castor oil methyl esters (CAOME) and ethanol blends. The peak value of break thermal efficiency (BTE) is found to be 26.34% at 75% load for a blend 80D+5B+15E with minimum emissions and with combustion duration and ignition delay in comparison with diesel.
Keywords: Injector Opening Pressure, Injection Timing, Reentrant Toroidal, Nozzle.
